- Travis' ranking has dropped to slot 51 - he still lives in a motel, and still loves anime and wrestling - Santa Destroy is being remade into a tourist hot-spot, which makes it look completely different - Bishop is having trouble with some gunmen (video store guy from first game) - Sylvia has invited Travis back to the world of the assassin - dual-wielding beam katanas - new character: Nathan Copeland - ranked 50th, and a fan of Travis (Guy with boom box arms, black chick thower from trailer). - new character: beam-wielding school girl that may be related to Travis
Also possible confirmation of Wii MotionPlus useage, according to the "trademark of Nintendo" part of the "coming soon" image below.
Also possibly more info in the next EDGE magazine if this teaser image is correct.
EDIT: Character artwork.

Talks about . . . - City of Santa Destroy has been taken over by the huge conglomerate Pizza Butt - Fixing the overworld - New enemies, new AI - Tuning the physics engine - Making the combat "cooler." - More than 10 boss fights happen in the game - More innovative situations for ranking battles, may not be limited to 1 on 1 fighting - Jeane (Travis's cat) is returning and has gained some weight. Thinking about having a minigame where you put her on a diet. Want it to be even better than Ubisoft's Petz titles. - Girl with Blondie hair and glasses is Travis's fan and becomes an assassin herself - Have motel, do more in it such as redecorating. - Travis's bike is back, Mark 2 version though. - Want this game to be as successful as possible, don't want it to lose to any over titles.
Hey, hey, I've got exciting news! I don't know if this was revealed before, but UBI Soft has picked up the sequel for NA, and the release date willbe 1/28/2010. I pulled this from my book distributor's video game listings.
Some control news: 1UP reports that Grasshopper has decided to impliment Classic Controller support for NMH:DS, and that the Motion Plus will NOT be in the game after all. You can thank Monster Hunter 3 Tri's success for this.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
